The Advanced Competency in Home Health program is a hybrid program consisting of core and elective on line modules and a 2-day live face to face course. This 2 day, 15 hour course is designed to complement and build on the core modules of the Advanced Competency in Home Health program. During the two day program, participants will revisit and practice skills required for quality cardiopulmonary, orthopedic and balance assessments that will be integrated into clinical vignettes. Participants will use these skills to support a thorough but efficient OASIS start of care or physical therapy evaluation in the home setting. Throughout the 2 day program, ethical and regulatory issues, as well as documentation will be incorporated into clinical case studies. Participants should be able to take the skills covered back to their home health settings and incorporate them immediately into patient care.

Audience: Physical therapists

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

  1. Demonstrate and interpret appropriate tests and measures for the cardiopulmonary system
